Connecting Acer Aspire 3680 to internet wirelessly

By dgdleon ·
I have a new Acer aspire 3680 with Vista and I'm trying to wirelessly
connect it to the internet. I also just bought and set up a Linksys
Wireless G router. The laptop detects and is connected to the wireless
network just fine but the internet doesn't work (unless I plug in the
ethernet, then it connects that way).

It is connected to the network but just can't get online. I have another
desktop machine connected by ethernet to the router (which is a Linksys
Wireless G) and it accesses the internet just fine.

I have only the most basic understanding of networks- please help-
thanks! I saw another post on this but the description of what to do
was over my head.

You may not have the router set up correctly. Double-check all the settings in the wireless section.

Some Tips

by sweber25 In reply to Connecting Acer Aspire 36 ...

You may want to try disabling your LAN port, because typically you can only have one port going at one time. You may also want to go through the steps and setup an actual wireless network using the "configure wireless network tool" found in Vista. If these don't help, contact Acer tech support for further information. I know Linksys is a pain in the *** to setup and get right

I have 2 acer 3680 laptops connected to a Linksys 54g router. One of them connects and the other doesn't.
